    Huge, lots to see but the best part was the talks (wild west guns and pattern welding) and performances of various types of sword fighting. Kept us well entertained 😊 we walked from the station and caught the lovely water taxi back, lunch was at pizza express just across from the museum entrance.

    Waterloo Lake is lovely but some areas around the lake are difficult to navigate due the the very uneven nature of the footpath. Mum was a bit frightened that she might tip into the lake where the path was very uneven. Does need sorting out for improved wheelchair accessibility

    A great day out - the house is really well done. The interpretation does an excellent job of taking you through the history of the house and is really clear and detailed. There are children's spaces every few rooms with a range of dressing up, games, soft seating etc. There's also a children's trail. The team were really welcoming and we were given a torch to take with us around the house so we could look at some of the objects which are kept in the dark for conservation reasons - this was a great touch!

    Caroline (one of the visitor assistants) was really wonderful, and we had a great chat all about the history of the site, etc. Really wonderful to hear about the Temple Newsam team and see how much they care about the house, collections, and visitors' ideas.

    The drink cans in the shop were a tad expensive but it's supporting the house and farm so totally understandable. The farm was lovely, too, loads of rare breeds and an amazing dovecote!

    Would 10/10 recommend!

    We visited here on a Tuesday morning and it was quiet and easy to get around. The highlight was the old streets showing what Leeds was like pre the sanitation improvements and the talk by Luke about the myths around left handinesses. He was really knowledgeable and enthusiastic - an asset to the museum. I’d recommend the museum for people of all ages and there was lots to do for children as well.

    We were lucky enough to secure tickets to see the Fantastic Peter Kay.
    Not a huge Q & we were soon through security.
    The drinks are a little pricey but that’s to be expected. ( a touch under £21 for 2 pints & 2 small battle if water)
    Lots of loo’s and very clean.
    The seats are a good size and we had plenty of room.
    As always the Q for the loo & bar during the interval was crazy.
    It was a very warm evening & the venue was horrendously hot, the air con kept coming on but it didn’t stay on & on a night like last night made it unbearably hot. The exit was swift & well managed by the staff.
    We parked in John Lewis multi storey , this is a 10 walk from the Arena. Very reasonably priced for Leeds City Centre.
    The show was FABULOUS. Welcome back Mr Peter Kay.
    I would have given top marks to the Arena if the had left the air con on!

    An ‘interesting’ visit to Harewood. Whilst the house itself is interesting I would steering clear of the poorly organised cafe. No separate way of just purchasing a drink so you have to join the slow moving food queue, pay for your drink and then join everyone else in another queue to collect your drink. Thankfully we were just in front of a coach party!

    We have been to this theatre a number of times and watched some great shows and I am sure we shall keep on coming back. Nice placebut don't get a seat on the top circle as to high it gave me and my wife vertigo.

    I recently visited Tropical World for the first time in quite a few years. I'm very glad to say it is still a really nice day out in the Leeds area, plenty of animals to see. The butterflies and birds in particular have quite a big area to roam around, making it easy to spend quite a lot of time looking for them.

    When I visited, some enclosures were closed and undergoing refurbishment, however it's good to see the attraction is still open despite this, and I'm intrigued to see what the new arrivals will be.

    The animals and enclosures all seem to be looked after very well. If anything, I would say the butterfly room could be monitored a little more closely, I noticed one had escaped and was flying around near the exit which was a little concerning as I'm sure they need to be in the warm environment set up for them.

    That said, this is overall a good day out with plenty to see, and I'm sure once the refurbishments are complete it will be better than ever!

    Interesting shops and interior. The shops were varied and craft related in the main and the building intriguing historically.

    Have spent many years at lotherton as a child and now with kids of my own spend lots of time here as a member. Under £70 for a family of 4 for the whole year is definitely value for money if you live close by. Had a few visits over the summer holidays as we only live 15 mins down the motorway. We enjoyed the summer events with more to do than usual and the members evening was a nice touch. Still enjoy walking around the hall, gardens and animal sections. My son loves the capybara. Yes some areas look a little tired but you can see they are redeveloping areas. Didn’t try the tractor rides but from other reviews see they were a good experience. Will no doubt be back for Halloween and Christmas experiences.

    Had a great, good value visit here today. Very interesting and fun way to spend a rainy afternoon. The shops in the downstairs area were atmospheric and fascinating, the kids loved it. The area they liked best was the old slot machines and toy displays upstairs. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Only reason did not give 5 stars was the toilets were not very clean.

    Absolutely great! As family with and son and daughter aged 11 and 13 we thought this was a great resource, we don't live in Leeds with live around 35 minutes away from the trinity shopping centre but we love coming here as they have so many good shops! A range of shoe shops, cafes, restaurants, jewelry shops and even high street shops such as primark, urban outfitters and new look! The trinity centre has restraunts such as five guys and other chain restaurants, as well as having a cinema! It's great as it connects the high streets of Leeds aswell! There is really something for everyone in the shopping centre, as my daughter age 13 loved the primark and urban outfitters! Me age 32 loved the new look and h&m. Whilst my husband aged 34 oved the superdry! And my son age 11 loved the shoe shops. I would recommend coming! It's great for family's and groups of friends of all ages! You can get everything in one place, it's quite busy at times so I would recommend arriving earlier to avoid waiting lines. However some shops have closed such a the victiora sectet! Ot some shops arent in the centre e.g jd, lush, sports dircet, zara but are only a short walk away! Overall its great and I would recommend!
